Pochettino said it took him just one attempt to replicate Alli’s hand gesture.
“I tried one time and was perfect. I promise. He said ‘fantastic, that is why you are the boss.'”

Unai Emery says his Arsenal side must improve in their Premier League clash against Chelsea.
The Gunners were outplayed at the Emirates Stadium against Manchester City in the opening round and now travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Watch what the Arsenal boss had to say in the video below.
The Cottagers earned their place back among the elite with victory over Aston Villa in last season’s Championship final.
Following a 2-0 home defeat to Crystal Palace on the opening weekend of the new top-flight campaign, Jokanovic and his squad were left with no illusions of the challenges that lie ahead.
While the Serbian is not expecting anything but another stern test of just what Fulham are made of when taking on Spurs’ star-studded line up, he believes the right approach can see the visitors produce a positive result.
“We know this team are probably going to take possession off us, and we must be ready to work all together off the ball, and show solidarity and great effort,” he said.
“In some part of the defensive work, you don’t have to be so talented, (but) you must be clever, organised, and show great decision-making off the ball.”
“We know they are going to press us. They are a really strong defensive team and when they lose the ball they are one of the best teams at pressing. They don’t give you many spaces.
“We know they have quality, they are a fast team, we know they can attack us very well.”
Fulham have brought in 12 players to bolster the squad over the summer transfer window, spending the best part of £100million following their promotion.
By contrast, Spurs were the only Premier League club not to invest.
Jokanovic, though, knows it will take more than just a large cash injection to keep the Cottagers competitive.
“They (Spurs) didn’t need to spend lots of money to stay at the highest level. Our situation is a little bit different, our process is going to be a little bit different,” Jokanovic said.
“They’ve been working together for many years. They know how to compete all together, how to work all together, how to attack and defend all together.
“For us, we are in a process for improving all these different things.”
